U.S. Navy heading towards Korean Peninsula in show of force, Trump says “All options are on the table.”


Over the weekend, Reuters released a report addressing the U.S. Navy strike group that is now moving toward the Korean Peninsula in a show of force, according to a U.S. official.

“We feel the increased presence is necessary,” stated the official, referring to what they consider to be ‘worrisome’ behavior from North Korea.

The U.S. Navy’s Third Fleet said the strike group had been directed to sail north, but it did not give a specific destination. The strike group, named ‘Carl Vinson,’ includes an aircraft carrier which is now making its way from Singapore toward the Korean Peninsula.

Primarily in the West, mainstream coverage of North Korea has repeatedly described DPRK leader Kim Jong-un as “belligerent” and “hostile,” citing his military’s recent liquid-fueled ‘Scud missile’ tests.

These scud missiles, not even armed with warheads, managed to travel a mere 37 miles before crashing into the Sea of Japan.

These missile tests reportedly occurred just before Donald Trump’s visit to China for his first summit meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

In a recent phone call with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, Trump promised to boost military capabilities in response to the Pyongyang missile tests, touting that “all options are on the table,” with regards to North Korea.

You know, I find it fascinating, the arrogance of such words coming from a country that is a routine violator of international law and human rights, that regularly invades sovereign soil, illegally bombing, staging foreign coups, and leaving thousands of innocents dead or wounded. The audacity of such a country pointing the finger at another leader claiming that he is “belligerent,” “hostile,” and “a threat to world peace,” for launching a few missile tests is astounding.

Let me make myself very clear: this article is not in any way meant to defend the DPRK, North Korea, Kim Jong-un, Communism, flag-burning, Sharia Law, Vampires, Ghouls, Ghosts or the end of Western civilization and everything America values and holds dear.

The goal of this article is quite simply to offer some perspective, and encourage the reader to look outside the narrow scope of the mainstream narrative we are being bombarded with daily.

Ask yourself, why is North Korea is so fearful of the Western power structure so as to be motivated to advance their military capabilities in case of necessary self-defense against imperialism, and why is it considered so outrageous for them to do so?

Think about it, why would North Korea actually want war with the United States? They’re aware of our military capabilities. They know better than to attack us first. With our nuclear arsenal, they realize that we could level their entire country overnight.

Instead, ask yourself this: why would the United States want war with North Korea? Could it be because they are one of the few remaining countries without a privately-owned central bank cooperative with the International Monetary Fund(IMF)?

Could it be because North Korea is an isolationist country that refuses to cater to our economic interests, unlike South Korea, with which the U.S. has produced nearly 60 billion dollars of trade volume with since the signing of the Free Trade Agreement?

This may all be mere speculation, but none-the-less there is a clear agenda being waged against North Korea by the mainstream media – in addition to Russia, Syria, Iran and China. Coincidentally, all of these nations conflict with our economic and geo-political interests in some way. Why is that?

Why indeed. These are the questions we should be asking ourselves, people. Don’t just accept what the media tells you at face value. These leaders we demonize – Putin, Assad, Kim Jong-un, are far from perfect by any stretch of the imagination. That being said, we have no room to be pointing the finger accusing other nations of being a “threat to world peace,” when our military intervention has killed over 20 million people since World War II. Not to mention the fact that we support such corrupt states as Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, or any number of brutal regimes and groups we’ve propped up and funded throughout history.

Think about all of this next time you see the media talking about North Korea, and speak up. Trump is now making it abundantly clear that he has no intention of standing in the way of the NATO agenda being pursued around the globe. These issues need to be addressed, we have to strike a dialogue here. Don’t let them drag us into World War III without a fight.
